Excerpt: I like painting however i don't like how long it takes to do and after trying a few cheaper options i decided to splurge out and get this. ==**In the box**== 1 x Bosch PFS 55 spray gun 1 x 600 ml paint container 1 x 100 ml measuring container 1 x Handle extension 1 x training DVD 1 x Instruction...
Summary: This product works well with a range of paints. I have used it with varnish as well as with emulsion. It's best to filter the paint prior to use and also start with a minimum setting and then adjust the nozzle opening on the trigger as required. It's important to thin emulsion for better results.
Summary: Its performance was just about acceptable. Only tried it with water based paint. Easy to clean. The small container makes it only useful for small surfaces. On the whole I was disappointed getting the right consistency of the paint . maybe improvement would come with practice
Summary: Purchased the PF65 to first time paint an old brick wall with emulsion paint. This sprayer does not like emulsion paint despite mixing the recommended 10% water it splutters with sometimes slow flow rate and sometimes none at all. In despair tried mixing with 20% water with the same result.
Summary: I was expecting a vibrating noisy motor but was pleasantly surprised to find that this is a fan assisted motor/pump unit,and very quiet.Only tried it with water at the moment.Looks to be another good tool from Bosch.
Summary: I bought this primarily to spray fine art with varnish but have since found dozens of other uses for it, including my fence and garden furniture and also painted a bathroom cabinet with normal paint which looks amazing. Very pleased indeed. Bought mine for £28.99 from Argos by the way....!
Summary: I brought this product primarily to paint the grill of a radiator cabinet (ie to avoid the drips that you get with a brush). It done this job well enough. I also painted the rest of the radiator covers.
Summary: I have a number of Bosch tools which are well designed and work very well. The PFS55 Spray Gun is the exception. I found it very difficult to get the Spray Gun to spray gloss paint smoothly and without sputter.
